Demand for Hereford sired cattle brought a large crowd to the Dunbia Hereford Show and Sale which took place at Dungannon Farmers Mart on Friday 23rd January 2015.
The Show Champion went to 20 month old Dorepoll 1 579 Knight Hawk, from JE, RI & W Haire while Sale leader was 16 month old Solpoll 1 Lumberjack from J & W McMordie, Co. Down. In all, thirteen bulls were sold at the Sale.
Kenny Linton, Dunbia Agriculture Manager who attended the Show on behalf of Dunbia commented: "There is a growing demand for Hereford beef from retailers which has resulted in a greater interest at the Hereford Show and Sale. Herefords are an docile, easy managed breed which produces marbled, succulent beef which is becoming more and more popular with consumers. Dunbia has a Hereford Scheme which offers financial benefits to farmers. Anyone interested in the Dunbia Hereford Scheme should contact me on 07917 851302.
